We will review key concepts related to wound/ulcer related debridement at the bedside or clinic. If you have ever wondered what should be debrided or how much, then this class is for you. We will seek to answer the question regarding when to use sharp, excisional debridement as a treatment option for wound management. Teaching methods include both lecture and hands-on practice of recommended techniques in a lab experience using simulated wound models made just for this purpose.
This course is designed for advanced practice providers including physician assistants and nurse practitioners. In addition, military members, physicians, clinical nurse specialists, nurse educators and nursing staff in trauma, acute care surgery, emergency medicine, and hospital medicine may benefit from this course.
